Mil jaa re jaan e jaanaa

Posted on: October 6, 2012

“Benazir” (1964) was a Bimal Roy Production movie which was directed by S Khalil. This movie had Ashok Kumar, Meena Kumari, Shashi Kapoor, Tanuja, Nirupa Roy, Durga Khote, Asit Sen, Tarun Bose etc in it.

Not much is known about this movie today. Here is what Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved in house encyclopaedia has to say about this movie :

BENAZIR(1964) was produced by Bimal Roy (NOT directed by), and was Directed by an ordinary director S.Khalil, who had earlier directed some nondescript films like Jhankar, Nai zindagi, Bhaijaan, Sartaj, Gunehgar, Deewar (1955) and Shahkar etc.

Benazir (Meena Kumari) is a dancer of Lucknow,who is loved by Nawab Afsar Hussain(Ashok Kumar), though he has a good looking and khandani Biwi, Begum Sarwari(Nirupa Roy), at home.

Benazir secretly loves younger brother of Nawabsaab, Anwar Nawab(Shashi Kapoor) who is -unknown to Benazir- already engaged to Shahida(Tanuja),younger sister of Begum Sarwari.

Anwar hates Benazir holding her responsible for Nawabsaab’s disturbed household. Once he goes to Benazir and is firing her when, instigated by illwishers, the Nawabsaab comes there, finds them together and gets a heart attack. The engagement of Anwar to Shahida is broken etc. The film ends on a tragic note.

Run of the mill story, weak direction and non interference of Bimal Roy in the film’s development saw to it that the film failed at the Box office.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the fourth song.

This song is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Tanuja.

Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Atif M.

jee chaahta hai tujh par
sadqe bahaar kar doon oon
teri khushi pe apni
duniya nisaar kar doon
woh pyaar ki ghadi jo
woh pyaar ki ghadi jo
tere huzoor guzre
usko qasam khuda ki
main yaadgaar kar doon
mil ja
mil ja aa
mil ja re jaan-e-jaanaa
mil ja
mil ja aa
mil ja re jaan-e-jaanaa aa

Although it is SD’s composition it sounds typically Roshan’s a la Chitraleka-sixties
